The Emblem of The Helping Hand

It was because of my sincere gratitude, that The Helping Hand Emblem
and this blog were created. Just my way of saying ~ ~
Much Obliged! Very Much Obliged!

The doors of the original Sojourner's Place officially opened for business on January 1, 2008. I was scared, but excited about this new venture. And now, while no longer scared - I remain excited with what the future holds for me and and the new Sojourner's Place launched May 2009!

Sojourner's Place and I came a long way in just a few short months. But, we didn't get there by ourselves. We had a lot of help, support, and encouragement. The blogsphere, Afrosphere, and definetely the AfroSpear welcomed us with open arms. And for that we will be enternally grateful.

Much Obliged and Paying it Forward #5

SjP's is STILL here. After 18 months, I'm still here - telling the truth according to me. But, there is no way that I could keep on keeping on without the support and encouragement of some very special bloggers.

So, it is fitting that I give a "Much Obliged! Very Much Obliged" to some very special Sojourners. Ya'll keep me going in so many ways, and I am so happy to pass The Emblem of the Helping Hand to you for all you do for me.
